Newman Architects has moved to a new, larger office space in New Haven which features a contemporary design and room for the firm to grow.

The 30-person firm, which was first established in New Haven in 1964, formally celebrated its relocation and expansion with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and grand opening Wednesday.

Its new home is on the 15th floor at 265 Church Street.

A. Brooks Fischer, a principal with the firm, said the new space is key to achieving the future which the firm envisions. 

“It gives us the room to grow, collaborate and connect in ways our previous space did not,” Fischer said.

The firm’s new office features meeting rooms of various sizes, including a large, flexible conference space which the firm plans to use for community and industry events and its sponsored lecture series.

Newman Architects had been at the historic 300 York St. building by the Yale University campus for about four decades. 

The new 15th floor location also offers views of the city, including overlooking several of the firm’s projects, such as the renovation and addition to City Hall and several projects at Yale University.

The firm regularly handles projects throughout the region, including at universities, schools, and municipal, commercial, spiritual and arts buildings.

It was recently involved in the renovation of the historic former Tyco building for a new three-story menswear store, J.Press, in New Haven. It is also the architect for 500 Blake Apartments in New Haven.
